Alternative cancer treatment of Coenzyme Q(10) (CoQ10) and a mixture of antioxidants lengthened survival of
patients with end-stage cancer.
In a nine year study, 41 patients with end-stage cancer were given CoQ10 and a mixture of
antioxidants (vitamin C, selenium, folic acid and beta-carotene). Their primary cancers were located in the
breast, brain, lungs, kidneys, pancreas, esophagus, stomach, colon, prostate, ovaries and skin.
On average these patients that
supplements with CoQ10 and antioxidants lived 16.9 months longer (which is more than 40 per cent longer),
than their predicted survival.
The vitamin treatments were well
tolerated with few adverse effects.
